These ‘Annabelle Comes Home’ Monsters Could Get Their Own ‘Conjuring’ Movie
The Conjuring universe is full of scary monsters. There have only been two Conjuring films, featuring the Annabelle doll and the Nun painting, and each one got their own spinoff films. La Llorona got her own movie and she never even faced Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga). Annabelle herself is on her third movie, while the Warrens have only made two Conjurings, although they appear in Annabelle Comes Home.
Annabelle Comes Home is on Blu-ray and DVD today. When the Warrens bring Annabelle to their Artifact Room, she unleashes some of the other creatures they’ve kept locked up. In the bonus features, the filmmakers reveal plans to delve deeper into those creatures in future movies, and reveal how they brought them to life in Annabelle Comes Home.
Here are a few things we discovered on the Annabelle Comes Home Blu-ray and you can discover even more from the filmmakers and cast members, including Farmiga and Wilson.
‘Annabelle Comes Home’ may introduce the next ‘Conjuring’ films
Annabelle Comes Home features creatures like The Demon, The Ferryman, The Bloody Bride and The Werewolf, and artifacts like a typewriter typing “miss me?’ and a television showing the future. All are based on real case files Ed and Lorraine Warren and the filmmakers aren’t done with them yet.
“We try to create new artifacts but at the same time have these artifacts be inspired by their true case files,” Conjuring creator James Wan says. “If we’re fortunate enough, we would love to explore in future films as well.”
Annabelle Comes Home writer/director Gary Dauberman said, “You think about these little stories, and maybe they’re future movies, maybe they’re not. They all have these little short stories for this movie and if you want to know more maybe we’ll tell it.”
The same actor played these two creatures
Alexander Ward played both The Demon and The Ferryman. You can’t tell because the makeup is so different. Could he have his own spinoff one day?
“Juggling two characters isn’t so bad when you look completely different,” Ward says. “Our makeup artists do that part of it for me.”
The Bloody Bride’s dress is from the ‘70s
Annabelle Comes Home is set in the ‘70s when the Warrens were actively investigating cases. The Bloody Bride’s dress comes from two bygone eras.
“We got very inspired by 1930s styles,” costume designer Leah Butler says. “We really liked this picture too from a 1970s dress. So it was a very true feeling from the 1930s but these elements that felt 70s. It was so much fun to take all these different period correct dresses and gravitate towards different elements.”
This ‘Aquaman’ Easter egg is in ‘Annabelle Comes Home’
James Wan was directing Aquaman while Annabelle Comes Home was in production. He lent them the key that Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Mera (Amber Heard) were pursuing in that movie. If you didn’t notice it in the Artifact Room, you’ll get a clear look at it in the bonus features.
